OT7 & MET COLLABORATION
On The Seven Events announce exciting collaboration partnership with Middle East Touch.
“More than just a game” is the MET motto, and we couldn’t agree more!
This exciting new partnership will be bringing the Middle East Champs back to life, after a 5 year hiatus.
John Larkins, Middle East Touch founder commented:
“I’m really keen to get the champs back to the level they were at when we had Scott Prince & Dylan Hennessy over here a few years ago but I’m also realistic we can’t do it alone. I used to hire an agency to assist with administration and marketing for previously tournaments, but On The Seven Events bring all of this, and more, to our partnership.
We will also look to tie in referee coaching and upgrades, as with Gregg’s last trip to Dubai in Feb 2020, which was really successful and well received by our affiliates at the Super 6s.
The event will also be a great test of the facility and our people if we can get more than 40 teams attending - which we are confident we can”
Having travelled to the Middle East in early 2020, Gregg Cropper from the OT7 team added:
“The resurrected event will be offering different grades open to all Touch teams, social, competitive, local and international and the venue is more than big enough to accommodate all of these. I’d go as far to say, the venue is phenomenal!
"We will also be looking to work closely together in the build up, to up-skill some of the METouch events team, in readiness to hold bigger events in the future.”
“The Middle East Touch teams have been travelling to Europe for a number of years and we have forged strong links over that time. It’s great to be able to officially partner with them and help further develop the sport we love”
